Peppermint oil has been used from time immemorial as a culinary herb to enhance the digestive functions of the body.
Mint is known to freshen the breath, and it helps the utility of the digestive system. Together, papaya and peppermint make an ideal combination.

PDAÂ [Digestive] supplements the bodyÂs digestive secretions. Special cells in the stomach lining require vitamin B-complex and other nutrients to manufacture hydrochloric acid to break down proteins during the digestive process. As people age, they usually produce less HCl, which affects the amount of protein they can absorb. An additional problem with incomplete protein digestion is subsequent imbalances in the flora that feast on these compounds. Each capsule contains 325 mg (five grains) of betaine HCl, supplying diluted hydrochloric acid and 65 mg (1 grain) of pepsin, a natural protein-digesting enzyme.
